IN THE BEGINING

Orphan at the age of 3 years, Bola Sue Omotosho, FAHPAC President, had to deal with the trauma of losing her mother and had to depend on the benevolence of community to overcome the challenge of growing up. Thus from her early days she believed in helping the poor and the under priviledged in the community.

She set up Omotola Hospital in 1992 and within a short period, she noticed the high incidence of abortion complications and prevalence of unwanted pregnancies among both in school and out-of-school adolescents and youths. Even in her community, the crime rate was high among the youth.

Unfortunately, the community appeared helpless but equally concerned. Upon investigation, the findings were confirmed with other private practitioners, landlords/landladies, associations and other stakeholders who expressed support for FAHPAC program, but cautioned against organizational fatique and abrupt death.

Following deft consultations with like minds, FAHPAC was born as a membership organization and was formerly inaugurated on November 12, 1992. The organization has a corporate registration in 1996 as a voluntary, non-profit, non-governmental organization with its Headquaters in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria.

FAHPAC members are successful people of various professional and career persuasions who share the same "dream" and volunteered their resources to assist the organization pursue program activities. There are also associates and corporate members.
